Updated: Oct 27, 2021

We’re pleased to launch the second set of eight new artist posters featuring projects by Andrea Mortson, Céline Huyghebaert, Jon Klassen and Laura Watson. They are each autonomous works, but can also be read collectively through the lens of the pandemic, with subject matter such as fear, safety and mortality.


An abstract collage in rich primary colours, pastels, and hazy greens, of vintage storybook illustrations.

Dream of being lost on the way home

Dream of being lost on the way home, is part of a series of analog collages made during the first year of the pandemic. It explores the neighbourhood where shrinking landscapes and growing dreamscapes comingle.
